Research shows that cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is an effective treatment for common mental health disorders of mild to moderate severity. Simply Effective Cognitive Behaviour Therapy guides the therapist in treating clients effectively in a simple, structured, time-limited way, as well as indicating where additional treatment or referral is required, thus widening access to CBT.

In this book, Michael J. Scott provides a practical and concise guide for therapists using CBT with a range of disorders including:

  • depression
  • panic disorder and agoraphobia
  • post-traumatic stress disorder
  • generalised anxiety disorder
  • obsessive compulsive disorder
  • social phobia.

Simply Effective CBT is illustrated throughout with transcripts of sessions which serve as models for putting theory into practice. It provides the therapist with sufficient understanding of the cognitive theory of a disorder, enabling them to tailor the protocols provided to the needs of the individual. The appendices include a CBT Pocketbook – to guide treatment and assessment for each disorder – making it essential reading for all professionals using Citioner’s Guide by Michael J. Scott (5 Mar 2009)


‘This book will prove highly valuable for those training in CBT and those practicing it. It is timely given the growing interest in developing CBT to better meet the needs of the huge number of people who could benefit from it. Dr Scott’s particular skill is in demystifying the process of CBT and making it relevant to those people we meet in routine clinical situations. This is a book written by a highly experienced clinician and researcher clearly at the top of his game’ – Dr Jim White, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board.


‘Mike Scott brings the therapeutic arena alive using clinical examples, therapeutic transcripts and some of his own words of wisdom.

This book manages to balance and structure theory, research and practical detail in a guide which helps the reader to understand how to conduct cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). Not only does it provide a clear clinical guide to treatment, but it also helps the reader to identify further resources and tools which will allow the clinician to extend the scope of their work without losing the essential empirical grounding which underpins CBT’. – Paul Salkovskis, Professor of Clinical Psychology and Clinical Director of the Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma, MaudsleyHospital.
